Nickel 200 Description

Nickel is a wrought commercially pure nickel with a maximum carbon level of 0.15%. This alloy provides highly ductile mechanical properties across a wide temperature range. It provides corrosion resistance in neutral to moderately reducing environments, provides high thermal and electrical conductivity in comparison to nickel-base alloys, stainless and low alloy steels. This alloy is not recommended for service above 600°F (316°C) because long-time exposures in the 800°F to 1200°F range result in precipitation of a carbon containing phase and loss of ductility.

Properties: Tempered

Nickel 200 can be cold rolled to achieve the temper properties required by specific customers and/or manufacturing requirements. Contact Ulbrich Wire for details.

Additional Properties

Corrosion Resistance

Refer to NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers) for recommendations.

Standard Wire Finishes

Extra Clean: Extra clean is also referred to as “bright annealed” or “bright annealed and cold rolled”

Grease (round wire only): Drawn in a heavy grease produces an “Ultra bright” finish for decorative applications

Soap (round wire only): Soap is used as a lubricant in the drawing process and is not removed. It acts as a lubricant during customer part forming operation.

A soap finish is available in tempered products.
Plated: Many plating options are available.
*Special finishes are available: Contact Ulbrich Wire Sales with special finish and plating requests.


Continuous Coils
Cut to lengths
Precision cutting

Heat Treatment

Nickel 200 is non hardenable by heat treatment.
